SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionIt was discovered that slapd contained an off-by-one error. An authenticated attacker could potentially exploit this by sending a crafted crafted LDIF entry containing an empty postalAddress.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected slapd package.
